Curbs has a new book out
? Well not exactly he has a paperbook version of his original book out, with a couple of added chapters in it but not about his 16 years at Charlton, oh no but his few months at West Ham when he miraculously kept them up at our expense. Nice eh? I mean who an earth is going to buy that? West Ham fans won't. They may if it was written by a small Argentine or an Icelandic biscuit barrel, sorry baron but Alan 'Mark Twain' Curbishley?
I don't want to bash the bloke, but that book was the
most boring bloody book I think I have ever read. "Woke up, had a cuppa, drove to the training ground, worked on set-pieces, think we will get everyone back for corners on Saturday, did a press-conference, said perhaps 17 times, ignored Deano today because he was asking me too many questions, and I really don't like that Konchesky kid, gets on my nerves, had a pint with Merv, he's a great bloke, drove home, watched Corrie with the Mrs."
I spilt coffee on my personally signed copy of the book, which my son bought me for my birthday after queueing up for it in Bluewater. I was annoyed by my clumsiness but truly if it wasn't for the fact that he bought it for me, my copy would now either be in a charity shop or the dustbin.
